The new feature expands on Google showing consumers looking to change their oil and get their hair cut how busy local businesses typically are.

If you're planning a few days ahead you can swipe left or right to see estimated wait times for every day that the restaurant is open. To alleviate this, Google has announced that both Search and Maps will soon feature wait times for hundreds of thousands of sit-down restaurants, enabling you to plan your meals ahead.

Ultimately, not even Mother Nature could save the Nittany Lions from the tail end of a three-game East Division maelstrom. When it restarted, Michigan State faced third-and-4 from Penn State 37-yard line with 7:58 to play in the first half.

Wait times will first be available on mobile and desktop search, and will later roll out to Google Maps. So not only will you be able to see the times a restaurant is busy or if it might be busier than usual at the moment, you'll also know just how long you might have to wait for a table should you show up. To calculate wait times, Google analyzes patterns of customer visits over the last several weeks. Moreover, summaries of each day's wait times can be pulled up by scrolling through the results. But unlike Google, NoWait also lets you put your name on the list for those restaurants that don't take reservations.

This particular feature has been a nice addition for Google Search, and with the inclusion of restaurants should go a long way to helping visitors. And by tapping on any of the hour bars, you'll see the estimated wait for that time period. And up next, says Google: Grocery stores.
